Don't feel badly if you didn't know or forgot. I really don't like people making a fuss over it, and am happier if it's ignored by most. I didn't really celebrate, either on the day or on the weekend following. There wasn't time. On the day, I worked, then had martial arts training, and then I went home to bed. On the weekend, I had to teach most of Saturday, and had the second part of my full Life Saving Society CPR/First Aid recertification all day Sunday.
I will be having a small celebration with my dad next weekend, so it's not like I'm not celebrating at all... before any of you rouse at me. And I plan to treat myself to something, when I figure out what that something is.
My brother, who is my constant supply of really awesome video games, sent me this for my birthday:
I'm excited to be playing Death Stranding. It looks like a really interesting game, with a really twisted story, and that's kinda my bag.
Writing has also been going relatively well. It's been rather slow, as I've only managed a thousand words a day (which, to be fair is my goal, but I'm used to being able to write double that). I've read through the manuscript and noticed a few scenes that needed to be inserted, which I've since done. Next up is a big reveal for one character, and a vindication for the other. I'm still loving the story, and the characters I've built in them. Celtic myth is full of really creepy iconography, if you think about it, and it's so much fun to play in this creepy space.
Today, however, I will not be writing. Today is query agents day. I'm really hoping that I'll be able to get this narrative I'm having so much fun with into the hands of someone who has equal amounts of fun with it. A girl can dream
So I'm off to do that. Wish me luck!
